I have a BS and M. Ed. from Wheelock College in Boston and over 25 years of professional experience in education.
Education and training in MBSR (Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction), Integrative Nutrition certification and education in anxiety disorders, ADHD and learning disabilities makes me uniquely qualified to support struggling children and adults in many effective ways.
My approach is relationship based, meaning trust and vulnerability are paramount in the work I do.
This level of genuine care for my clients coupled with best practices in education and behavioral strategies bring success to the people I work with.

Remember what we read and hear
Manage our emotions and responses
Focus and pay attention
Plan and prioritize
Initiate and complete tasks
Communicate and self advocate effectively
Handle several things at once
Lori has been invaluable to our family. She worked with our daughter consistently from middle school through the time she landed her first job in a school system. Lori and E developed a relationship that supported, nurtured and guided E in her life, from the time she was 12 years old through young adulthood. Early on, Lori understood E’s learning disability and challenges with emotional regulation and coached me on how to effectively support her at home and school through a more comprehensive IEP, which we developed together. Lori’s work with our daughter throughout high school and college, and then with resume writing and job interviews helped E feel confident about her skills and ready to enter her professional work. Now, as an educator herself, E reaches out to Lori for professional coaching and consultation. It is a very special relationship.
